Car-free and pedestrianised with the streets covered in snow, Avoriaz is unique in Europe. The resort continues to evolve and reduce its ecological impact thanks to public and private investments.
There’s no need for pavements here, simply enjoy your holiday with both feet firmly on the snow-covered ground that skiers share with pedestrians and horse-drawn sleighs. Avoriaz is a children’s paradise and magical winter wonderland that helps you forget about the daily grind.
The mimetic architecture is designed to resemble the surrounding landscape, blending beautifully into the setting. The resort’s unique characteristics, showing a perfect example of a harmonious marriage between nature and modernity, has earned Avoriaz official recognition as one of the greatest architectural achievements of the 20th century.
The revolutionary design of this integrated, vehicle-free resort is matched by the commitments made by Avoriaz 1800 made right from the start in terms of sustainable development, well before environmental issues were on everyone’s lips.
The 650 kms of Franco-Swiss ski area will offer you wonderful views changing from one valley to the next. Winding through the forests of majestic pine, the slopes for levels will surprise you sometimes by their technical and sometimes playful side. The many mountain restaurants will welcome you within their warm and authentic atmosphere where you can eat with family and friends at noon.
